Sassy Frass Scrappy Purse

sassy frass scappy purses

These are what have filled my needles lately. More on why later. Today I thought I would share this very simple pattern with you. This is an easy little girls knit purse that I call the Sassy Frass Scrappy Purse because it’s the perfect project to use up that leftover yarn from bigger projects. As you can see from my instructions, it is very versatile. You can make it in any size you want!

Turn inside out and you have a little girl’s purse! If you want to add to it, you can cut flowers out of felt and sew them on or crochet little flowers to sew on.

*You can make the strap as long or short as you want. I like the longer strap for the vertical purse and the shorter one for the horizontal purse.
